The time has come when the public realize that teaching is 
a profeeafon, and (BOM entering it must be qualified. A call 
to teach is a call to prepare to teach. The old schoolmaster 
was content with ■ knowledge of the "three R's"; the ideal 
modern teacher, beaidea these, must study the "three M'<— 
Mind, Matter, and Method". 



COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT. 

This course of study embraces Hook-Keeping, Commercial 
Arithmetic, Baaineaa Correspondence, and Penmanship. Drills 
will also he given in Commercial Law and Civil Government. 
type-writing and stenography will be taught, with moder- 
ate charges, to those who may desire a knowledge of these 
subjects, and who have leisure to devote to them. 

It is intended to make this department one of eminent utility. 
The time has come when our girls as well as boys should 
have a practical business education. Many lucrative and hon- 
orable positions are open to women qualified to fill them ;

besides, every housekeeper should know how to keep a correct 
account Of her income and expense*. 

A Mice. --tul business man. referring to this "new departure", 
wrote us last year, "I ID) glad to see you have a commercial 
department. Our women know Tory little about the every. 
.lav business affairs of life. Many graduate* oan work out 
difficult problems, ami read Latin and French; hut how 

many can make out a post-ofhoe money order, or tell the 
difference hetween a .Iraft ami a check? You are on the 

right line: teach your trirls business." This department ii 

not an experiment, but has been in successful operation for 

the past three years. During the present ---ion twenty- 

•even young ladies completed the course. As to the utility 

Of this department, and the character of work .lone, sec else- 
where the report of Visiting Committee from North Georgia 

Conference, ami also the report of E xa m inin g Committee from 
Board of Trustees. 



MUSIC DEPARTMENT. 
This department offers, to those desiring it, a thorough 

curse in theorv. vocal and instrumental music. The teaelier> 
in charge are eminently qualified for their respective positions, 

baring had advantage* of the best Conservatory Muting. The 
methods employed are those used by the besl instructor! of 

American and European Conservatories. A- a proof pf the 

success of this department, we mention the fact that the pres- 
ent music class numbers one hundred and twenty-seven-i 
.rain of over fifty-six per cent, in one year. 
* We invite vour attention to the graded courses of study 
given below. Th.' time required by each student to complete 

a full course in any branch of music, and to obtain a diploma. 
will be determined by her previous attainment-, and by the 
rate of progress as dependent on her talent and industry. 

The branches taught are the following: 
I. THEORY. 

Under theory is included notation, thorough-bass, har-

The pwiirfiu Old Italian method is used. Correct 
breathing is regarded as the basis of good tone as 



well as of good health. A complete coaree of bieatliingia. 
therefore, given in connection with voire culture. Pupili m

MODERN LANGUAGES. 

German, French, and Spanish are taught by competent in- 
structors. Abort on,. -half of the Western Continent speak 
tlie Spanish language. Since the United States Lj now in very 
close religious and coinnicrcial relations with Mexico, a know- 
ledge of Spanish is a desideratum. We have incorporated the 
last Banted atodj in our course, and it is taught by one who 
has made this language a specialty. 



In t'u- modem Langaagw the celebrated Meieterachaft 
System is need. By mean* of thin method, pupils, in a very 
short time, acquire ■ practical, ipeaking knowledge of the Ian- 
guage studied. 

IMPORTANT FEATURES. 

Special attention is given to letter-writing, punctuation, pa* 
maaahip, boaineaa forma, orthography, pbonke, and Engntfa

vanced classes will here freqnenl reriewa In all the elementary 
branches, baaidea drills in orthography. 

CHARACTER OF INSTIUVTIOX. 

The teachers are all liberally educated, eiithu-ia-tie, and 
experienced. Their vacations are not spent in mere idle 
recreation, hut in studying matter and methods, thereby battel 
preparing themselves for their special work. The teaching k 

thorough and practical; hold to adopt all modern bookaand 

metl -that are approved, equally hold to hold fast to the 
old that have been found good. The course of instruction is 
oumulaHvt, not Atemrdtng the lower elementary branekei 
when advancing to the higher* hut incorporating and studying 
them throughout the entire course. 

ROUTINE <>F STUDY AND RECITATION. 

Pupils are rarely confined more than an tone* at a time in 
study and recitation. Short, ttaUd interval- for recreation 
and physical training are incorporated in the schedule of daily 
duty. ' Daily gymnastic exerdaea, under the direction of a 
competent teach'er. aiv required of eachpui.il. This iyet«a 
is claimed to he superior, highly conducive to health of body 
and vigor >f mind.

our rates cheap. They will compare favorably with those ,,f 
any similar institution in the South. For terms of payment, 
see below, under bead ol stipulation-. 

Upon application, special rate- will be furnished to two or 
more pupils from the same family or c ommuni ty, entering col-

drainage; henoe there Unoticlmemariaingfrom malaria. ]'u- 

pill can enjoy here a semi-tropical I limati — lacking the ex- 
treme cold of higher latitudes, and, at the same time, without 
the intense heat of placet less elevate. 1. It is a Bottoaabk 
fact that our pupils leave aohool in better health than whin 

they entered. 

SITUATION. 

The College occupies a most magnificent site, eight hundred 
feet above sea-level. College Hill Is seventy-five feet higher 
than railroad depot, affording a co mm a nding view of -ur- 
ronndkg country, as far as the eye can reach. Being situated 
one-half mile from husiness center of town, the college affords 
a quiet, beautiful retreat, where teachers and pupils board 
together, and constitute one family. The late Dr. Sears, 
agent of the Peabody Fund, said of the situation, that he had 
traveled extensively in Europe and America, visiting ichooh 
and colleges, but had never seen one equal to this for t>eauty 
and adaptation.

affording perfect ventilation. Upon it there are six roo&u 
devoted to recitation, laboratory, and mnaeum. On the aecond 
loor are located the chapel and a complete arrangement of Music 
I room*, convenient to the Chapel, and admirably situated for 
instruction and practice. The Art. Society, and library rooms 
occupy the third Boor. 

New desks, maps, charta, and other instrumentalities have 
lately been furniahed, and the college buildings will soon be 
much improved and ornaawnted 

THE COLLEGE CHAPEL. 

The Chapel ia 60x100 feet, with a capacity for 1,500 persons. 
It is beautifully lighted by large windows, and has four en- 
trances, It has Keen pronounced, by distinguished visitors, to 

M the finest audience room in the South. 

THE COLLEGE HOME. 

The College Home is conveniently situated near the college. 
During the past year, at an outlay of nearly 110,000, it has 
been enlarged to more than doable its former capacity, giving 
us ample accommodation for more than a hundred board- 
ers. The boarding department is now a handsome briek 
betiding, 50x160 feet, two atories high at one end and three

at the other. It contains thirty room* for boarders, par. 
bra, reading-room, kitchen, rtore-room, etc, and a Dining 
Hall 80x60 feet. Each story of the building ha* a ball run. 
Ding it« entire length, thua affording ample ventilation and 
easy escape m oaae of tire. The rooma for boarderi arc 
eighteen feel square, and are irell lighted by two or mors 
large windows. The thickness of the vails of the building is 
a protection against the extremes of 1 1 *-•* t and cold, and young 
ladies find their rooms comfortable in erery season. Water- 
works and other conveniences will be supplied l>y beginning 
of the coining session. 

GROWTH AND OUTLOOK. 

Prospects for the ooming session are cheering. The College 
is steadily increasing in numbers and prosperity. Under the 
present management, it began three years ago with al>out a 
half dozen boarders ami half a hundred pupils. Its instruc- 
tion and management hare been endorsed, daring the third 
year, by a local patronage of ninety-five pupils, representing 
every religions denomination of the vicinity. Its inerea*in<r 
popularity abroad is attested by the fact that, beginning hi 
first year with six boarding pupils, it ended its third with 
eighty-four. In l**ti, enrolling 104, it shows in 1888 an at- 
tendance of 1 7i» — a gain of seventy-two per cent. This growth 
has been attained not by endowments and many titled profes- 
sors, but by the honest, thorough work done by it^ profes- 
sional teachers. This phenomena] growth forced upon the 
judgment of the trustees the necessity of enlarging the 
boarding department. They further endoT »the present admin- 
istration by committing the College to their management for a 
period of twenty years. This trust, however, in no way im- 
pairs their official authority, nor disturbs the relation of the 
College to the Conference. 

ALUMNA 

The Alumna? of the College hold an annual meeting "luring 
Commencement to revive the associations of the past and con- 
tribute, as far as possible, to the prosperity of the Alma Mater.

the stat.- of Georgia. Through the generally of friends, val- 
uable addition! have bees made during the past session. 
Further contributions from friends are earnestly solicited, and 
will be duly acknowledged 

LITKKARV SOCIETIES. 

The Iranian and Mczzofaritian Societies are accomplishing 
much for the College. These two societies will meet in their 
respective halls cadi Saturday forenoon, instead of on Friday 
afternoon as heretofore. Their exercises will consist of read- 
in--, recitations, original laa aja , criti raanw, e tc , in which all of 
the meenben take part. Each society has the nucleus of a 
good library. Among the list of books of reference, pupils 
have access to four encyclopedias and an equal number of un- 
abridged dictionaries. Much time and attention will be given 
to building up these libraries, which will prove valuable aux- 
iliaries to a finished education. Money or books contributed 
to these libraries will be gratefully received and acknowledged. 

STUDIES OF BOARDERS. 

Boarding pupils study in the afternoon and two hours after 
tea. under the c?re of "\ teacher. No desultory or aimless study 
is allowed. This provision really doubles the advantages 
which boarding pupils possess over those who are not inmates

8EWING CLUB. 

During die past session, ■ sewing ohib was organised among 
the boarding pupils. This clnbmeton Saturdays, and received 
instruction in plain and oniamental sewtog, under the diree- 
tion of Lady Principal. This experiment bas been so gratify- 
ing in its results that we intend, for next session, to place a 
specialist in charge of Una department. Regular lo s s oni will

making, etc. 

NEATNESS— ORDER— DRE88. 

Even- effort is made to secure the ntmost neatness and order 

on the part of the young ladies, in the arrangement and care 
of their rooms, clothing, and persona 

The Matron inspects the rooms of boarding pupils daily, and 
notes all instances of disorder, negligence, or untidiness. 

Every effort is made to secure such plainness and simplicity 
in the style of dressing as is consistent with sound economy 
and good taste. 

UNIFORM. 

For the sake of economy, and to prevent any discontent 
arising from disparity in dress, we have adopted a uniform, 
which shall be worn on Sundays, and such other occasion- Si 
the Lady Principal may p roscri be. For fall and winter this 
will he of gray dress flannel, medium shade, with hat to match. 
The uniform for spring and summer will be selected and an- 
nounced later.

places in society all profess to 1* the children of God. 

HEALTH AND PHYSICAL TRAINING 

In no private household in there employed ■ clo!er or more 
intelligent supervision over the inmate! than i! here exercised 
over the health of the Iwarding pupils. The slightest ailments 
are prompt ly treated. In serious eases, the best medical advice 
is secured and competent nurses provided. < %oiet of physi- 
cian and <>/ tin tyttm <>/ tr mtimaU ntU "-it/, thipmmt, and, 

where made known to the President, is serupuously respected. 
All the conditions of proper sanitation are carefully observed. 
Day pupils are not allowed to expcee their health. Little 
children are provided with play-room within doors during the 
inclement winter weather. The regular drill in calisthenics, 
with dumb-bells, wands, anil rings, and in f ree gymnastics, aids 
in promoting and maintaining sound health, muscular develop- 
ment, and graceful carriage. 

DOMESTIC AKKAXUEMENTS. 



The sleeping apartments of the College are accommodated 
each to four inmates. The heavy articles of iurniture, such 
as bedsteads, washstands, tallies, wardrobes, and chairs, are 
tarnished by the College. The boarders are expected to fur- 
nish their own outfit for the room. Each one should furnish 
one pair of sheets, one pair of blankets or comforts, one cover-

or their ladies. No request from parents to allow their daugh- 
ters to do shopping for themselves, or for any one else, will lie 
complied with. 

All purchases are made for cnx/i, which must, for this pur- 
pose, k- deposited with tome member of the Faculty. 

Boarders are not allowed to keep money in their rooms, 
exafit .it tin ir mrii risk. 

The Faculty, their families, and the boarding pupils, all par- 
take at the aanu table, ami constitute one large family, in 
which the supervision and care of the pupils devolve upon the 
President, assisted by his associates. The harmonious and 
kindly feeling thus generated obviates the necessity of an ex- 
ccssiveh rigorous discipline. Confidence between pupilsand 
teachers is invited and secured. 



THE GOVERNMENT 

Is mild hut firm. The pupil is taught to respect herself, and 
to maintain her self-respect and the respect of those around 
her, by observing the proprieties of life in all her conduct, ami 
in her intercourse with her fellow-pupils and instructors. The 
effect is first to establish good principle*, and then govern her 
bv teaching her to govern herself in accordance with tboM 
principles. Such an esprit il> corps is thus secured as renders 
rigid discipline rarely necessary.

FOB PATRONS. 

Whenever a pupil is entered i„ College, the Facultv con- 
fer that an implied contract it made between themselves and 
the patron, by wind, the latter is as dumb hound to continue 
the papU in College until the does o4 the term, as the Faculty 
are bound to inetract her for that time. Those who take away 
their daughter! for a few .lays, without weighty reasons for 
nob atnenee, not only impair the scholarship of "their dangb- 
term, but impose niweeeary trouble upon the Faculty, and in- 
troduce a reetleeanea in the minds of all, very unfavorable to 
-tudy. 

Parents who, for any cause, desire their daughters to come 
home, should Brat communicate with the President on the sub- 
ject, and specific instructions as to the time and manner of 
baring should, in every case, be tent to him. 

Three reports per annum of each pupil's standing in her 
studies, attendance, and deportment in every respect, will be 
nit t,, her parent or guardian. All are required to pass ap- 
prove.! examinations in the studies which they pursue. These 
examinations are conducted in writing, and under such regula- 
tions m to afford a just criterion of the scholarship of each

to educate your daughters : 

1. Location.— Half mile from busiaCOS center. seveTity-five

free from malaria. 

|. BOAKDWQ.— Pnpil» ; »" 1 tca.hers board together m tol- 

lege Home. 

4 Ka.ii.ty.— Trained and p iugio s siv e teachers, engaged 

exclusively in teaching. 

6 Cotjwx of B«n>T^-Well graded from Prat (Trade to 
Senior class. Hooks ami methods up with the times. Spell- 
ing and penmanship throughout the course. 

6 Tka.iikks' Ci.Ass.-Actual and prospective teachers 
have a thorough course in Methods and Management, as well 
as reviews of common school branches. 

7. BooK-KKKi-iN.i.-Taught free in regular course. Special 
attention given to letter-writing, punctuation, etc. 

s. Si..HT-siN,;iNo.-Taught daily, free of charge, by one 
who has made the subject a specialty. 

9. Ex i-k.nsks.— Thorough work, reasonable rates, no inci- 
dentals. 

10 P R o. ; u,ss.-Ueferring to page 80, it will be seen that

HISTORICAL BKETCH. 



In 1888, this Lnetitution commenced its work under the nam : 
of LaQrange Female Academy. It- tir-t teacher of note m 
Bar. Thomas Btanley, ■ Methodist minuter. He taught sue 
oessfully during 1888-6, when death removed him from his I 
loved employment. After his death, the school was taught 
by his wife, Mrs. Ellen Stanley, end, after her, by Mr. John 
Park, until 1842. Daring that year, Mr. Joseph T. Montgom- 
ery secured the Academy from the Board of Trustee* In I 
January 1848, he took charge of the institution. beginnia| I 
with thirteen pupils. In leas than two years the school bad 
grown beyond a hundred, and continued to Increase rapidly in 
numbers. The idea of an institution of high grade was eon 
ceived. Application was mnda far a charter, and LaGtaap 
Female Institute was organised with increased facilities sal 
extended charter privileges, [n 1846, the first three graduate] 

commenced the roster of alumna", whose names now reachfn 
up into the bond* ds. Beaidas thoee who completed the ear- 
rioulum, received their diplomas, and had thoirnamas record* 

as children of this Alma Mater, hundreds of others, receirinj 
here wholesome instruction and fit preparation for after Inc. 
have gone forth to bless the world. 

The College continuing to grow, it was deemed necessary to 
increase its teaching facilities, and to amend its charter privi- 
leges. On Julv 4, 1861, the corner-stone of the old La- 
Grange Female College was laid with due ceremonies by the 
Masonic fraternity of this place, and in June or July, 1852, 
the first class was graduated in the new chapel. Mr. 3. T. 
Montgomery had associated with him his brother. Mr. Hugh 
B T Montgomery, and later Rev. T. F. Montgomery.

apon the duties of bieoAoe, and oondueted the college with 
great success until March 28, 1880, When the building waa 
burned, after ■ concert bad been (riven in it. The citizens of 

LaGrange promptly met ami subscribed *Ki to have it 

rebuilt The contract was let and the walls went up, but. 
tb work k'ing interrupted by the war, the roof was never 
put on, and the walls became unsafe. 

In July I860, President Harris retiring, Rev. G. J. Pearce 
was elected to the presidency, and appointed financial agent 
for the < !ouege He acted in this double official capacity until 
the winter of 1868, when the exercises of the College were 
impended on account of the war. From that date until 1866, 
the College was supported mainly by local patronage, and 
conducted more as a school than as a college. In 1866, its 
reorganization began under the presidency of Rev. Mr. Arm- 
strong. The patronage soon dwindled so in numbers, that the 
College, for a time, was committed to the charge of Mrs. Curt- 
ri;_dit and .Mrs. Montgomery.

In December, 1887, the Georgia Annual Conference, at ita 
session in Augusta, Ga», tendered the college property to At 
local Board of Trustees, on condition thai they would aenme 
and liquidate all ita liabilities. During the war, the buildinga 
of the Southern Female College had alao been destroyed by 
tire. Sn at the clone of the war, LaGrange, after all her rim. 
tributiona of thought, patronage, and money to proper facilities 
for higher female education, found herself without a finished 
college building. The boarding hotue of the LaGrange Female 
College was uaed for teaching purposes, and the patronage of 

both institutions was united and taught in that house, under 
the presidency of the late Pre*. l.F. CoX. After two years suc- 
cessful management, Mr. COS retired and addressed himself to 
the rebuilding of the Southern Female College, ami Dr. Mor- 
gan Callaway was elected president. Under his administration, 
four young ladies graduated in 1X71. In December, 1x71, I)r. 
Callaway resigned, and Rev. F. I'. Birch was elected to till his 
place. In 1*7'J, President Birch, <>n account of failing health, 
resigned, and Mr. J.T. Johnson presided from November, \*~,-l 
to December. 1*74. Rev. .1. K. Mayson then took the College 
in hand, ami, by indefatigable labors, finished the building still 
incomplete. CpOB his resignation. Dr. J. W. Heidt succeeded 
to the presidency, and continued in office until July, 1**5, when 
he tendered his resignation. 

Rufua W. Smith, then President of Dalton Female College, 
was elected to succeed him. At the end of his second year,' 
June, 1**7, on account of the need of more boarding room ami 
better teaching facilities, the trustees raised over eight thou- 
sand dollars, which has been appropriated to those needs. 
They also leased the buildings to present incumbent for a 
period of twenty years. The collegiate year ending June 6, 
L888, finds the College with a patronage of one hundred and 
seventy-nine pupils, eighty-four boarders, and one hundred 
and twenty-seven music pupils. The thorough work, rapid 
growth, and wide-spread popularity of the College promise 
still better results during the scholastic year 1888-89.

We reprint from the Wttkyan ChruHan AchoeaUtai arti- 
cle from the pen of Dr. Weyman II. Potter, its gifted editor, 
eoneerning the outlook for the LaOraage Female College. It 
is a deaerved tribute to a school which standi among the first. 

President Smith and wife are assisted by an able faculty- 
Professor Baler IJ. Smith, whom capacity and success have 
given him a high position among Southern educators; Mrs. 
Enler 15. Smith, who is a brilliant lady and a teacher without 
a superior in her department; Miss Pond, the instrumental 
teacher, whose past achievement* are a guarantee that her 
work will always be efficiently done, and the accomplished 
Miss Witherspoon, one of the fir»i young ladies and most 
gifted vocalists in the South. With such a corps of instruc- 
tors there can be no failure. The College is enjoying great 
prosperity. The boarding house is full and the local patron- 
age excellent.— LaOrangt Reporter, Oct. 10, 1886.
